Let's Help Butchie Beat Cancer

As most of you know by now, on Friday, June 26, our friend Matt aka 'Butchie' received the news that no one ever wants to receive, a Stage IV Colon Cancer diagnosis.  The road ahead is long, but everyone remains hopeful that they will get this thing under control. 

Many folks have already reached out to Matt and Emily to see how they can help. Matt will be taking leave from work for his treatments, and Emily will be his steady companion, while still working remotely. Turns out, on top of all the other horrible things about cancer, it is also extremely expensive. Since we all know that the American healthcare system is not great Bob, there will be bills a plenty in the days, weeks, and months to come. 

The last thing anyone wants to worry about in times like these is money, so for all of us looking to channel our anxiety/sadness/urge to just do something, I think this gesture will go a long way.

To read the story of Matt's diagnosis, and keep up to date on how things are going, you can check out the website he and Emily have set up

I've set a goal of $10k, but we will adjust accordingly.
